Patricia’s style is intuitive. Her empathy for people and her knowledge in varying disciplines equips her with the skill to help people achieve success whether that be by mentoring, coaching, counselling, advising or consulting.
When reading this you may immediately think NLP!! Why do I say this? because when I mention to anyone that I motivate or coach I am bombarded by people asking if it is NLP.
So I feel bound to explain that neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), happiness projects, ‘flourish’ projects have become buzz words. The actual philosophy behind them has been around for years. Indeed my Steps for Success series of books and online program and my methods include all the different approaches as ’one size’ does not fit all but I emphasise that I studied for many years to become a qualified psychologist and all my experts are professionals qualified in their discipline.
Patricia is an examiner in law and corporate relationships for professional institutes such as CIPS, ABE and ifs School of Finance (from 2002 to 2010). She is involved in quality assurance issues as an academic reviewer of courses at universities and colleges. She enjoys her role as residential tutor at Open University summer school where she inspires and is inspired by the many who attend. She is able to bring humour to even the most dry subject such as ‘contract law’ or ‘health and safety’ while not losing the depth of the message she is delivering.
Patricia is also a mentor for Business Mentoring Scotland www.businessmentoringscotland.co.uk and Realise Mentoring www.realisementoring.org.uk through Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce. She has been doing this successfully for a number of years. Those whom she mentors come from all types of business and walks of life.
‘Patricia assisted me in realising I had the potential within to succeed as an individual and in my business’ Cliff R
‘Thank you for such a comprehensive note of our meeting – you’ve saved me time today. I’ll submit it to Monday’s committee meeting and know they’ll be delighted’. Ann P (Mentee on Realise Mentoring programme).
As with NLP, coaching has become a ‘buzz’ word with many people saying they are coaches, life coaches, executive coaches. Indeed Patricia’s sense of humour was lost on someone who was eager to tell her that he was an ‘executive’ coach whereupon she asked how many wheels he had on his bus!
Long before ‘coaching’ was the ‘thing’ everyone was doing, Patricia had been doing it for years, enabling individuals to be the person they wanted to be, assisting them to realise that the potential was within them and what they had to do was access it. Her many clients realised that inner happiness and success was within. It was through her own and her client’s experiences and the success they achieved that Patricia put her techniques into writing and 7 Attributes for Success (Inner Success and Happiness) was born.
‘I am a regular client and work in a pressurised environment. For me there is nothing better than carrying out my positive affirmations and using creative imagery to make me feel better….’ Peter F, Business Adviser
